. there are people and technology that say this is a place they want to be. entrepreneurs say this is where they want to be. when companies like facebook are started at an institution like harvard and a pier, you start to recognize why this is so special and fiber and why innovation is a bleeding heart economy. so let me try to give some brief introductions about our panel today. i have to confess, i only just met one of our panelists, lee said dyson, the ceo of coverity. she got a ph.d. in physics from mit but felt the urge to come out here to california and she did her research at stanford and lawrence berkeley. that is an indication we are getting smart people like her out to california to start companies like hers. 15 employees in 2008. it is interesting, we talk about cloud computing and these technology companies, but she takes electronic waste that is rich in carbon and recycles that into oil for plastics and a variety of other things. i wish i had more time to talk to you and get to know you because i am sure there's an interesting story that you will really enjoy hearing from her. you have a
had about technological unemployment by a fellow named john keens in 1930. >> we've always been both correct and wrong. the correct part of this idea of technological unemployment is automation and technology do destroy jobs. they automate jobs away. at the same time, technology creates new opportunities, entrepreneurs create new companies, new industries. >> created more jobs than destroyed. >> unbelievable amount of jobs. so we've had, even in this era of intense industrialization for the past couple of centuries, we had pretty close to full employment. it's this really great run. my deepest worry is that that run might be coming to an end and that things actually are different this time. >> why? >> because when i look at the bundle of stuff that any of us can offer to the work force or offer to an employer, all the previous ways of technology combined don't encroach on that bundle very much. >> the steam engine took away or comparative advantage lifting heavy stuff, unless you're a circus strong man or athlete, no one hires to you do that any more. but the encroachment of technolo
's talk about the technology, what is it and how does it work? there are three types of solar actually when you sauk about solar. i want to avoid the confusion to make sure we're focusing on the right one. two of them involve heating water and they're very viable technologies, can be very coast effective but we're not going to deal with them right now. one is solar pool heating. it pumps the water up there, heats it, runs it through there, the sun heats it and back into the pool. this one is called solar thermal or solar hot water. it heats domestic hot water or d.h.w. that's your hot water that you use four showers and dishwashers. we're going to talk about solar electric. they have the same technology as computer chips. they're similar in structure to that tran cystor-like computer chip technology based on silicon. the best thing about them is there are no moving parts and they last a long time. there are cells, modules, and arrays. a cell is one of these pieces here. it's a small unit wired together in a certain way to produce half a volt. these are hooked together in whatever size
? is there a bubble? >> i would like to speak about the clean technology sector. there was a little bit of a bubble that emerged in 2005, 2006, 2007 time frame. what has happened since then is you see the landscape changed. there have been a lot of companies and vc's, founders, that are focused on very few investments in companies but are in it for the long run. the time and invested it takes to build a clean tech company. the difference with clean tech, there might be large facilities required, investment to build your first plant, for instance. we are seeing a change in the landscape. one thing i want to add, too, for clean tech, there are organizations like the clean tech opened that foster innovation and identify and help on to produce with that system, present their idea, put together their business plan, attract the mentors and advisers to help them build their technology. the incubators are contributing to a maturing clean tech and biotech sector -- sector. >> just a short comment. we focus in this building, a research center, on technology. some of it is near term, some of it is very long t
are right behind me. to some of the leading technology companies in the valley. we have companies that raise anywhere from a thousand dollars to $25 million that have sort of been housed with us. some of the coolest things that have happened at the hatchery two people sitting next to each other working on the same app for six months decided to merge and raise a million dollars for their company. so, collaborative consumption is something we truly believe in and having spent a couple of years working with the likes of jane, brian, tina lee and a bunch of other people who have been sort of working on this open data problem, it's been sort of exciting to sort of see it come to fruition today and see sort of the progress that they've made. so, for me this is sort of -- it's been fun to sort of watch this team of people come together and do what they do and make san francisco a 21st century city. so, you know, it's an honor to welcome the mayor back to the hatchery, the new hatchery. we invite you, supervisor chiu, to our monthly infamous happy hours where bourbon and branch caters to meet with o
ago, i like all of you started a company. i started in i-ti a technology company in the 1.0 world. it was a company that created technology to connect citizens better with government * . i ran it for almost nine years. and when i was elected to office four years ago, i was unfortunately more surprised than i wanted to be about how far behind san francisco government was. this was very 2008, 2009. with you i'm really proud of the leaps and bounds we have taken as a city * . i was proud in 2010 to help move forward legislation to really bring together city departments to work in a coordinated way with our committee on information technology. to help create a chief information officer position for the city. i was also proud to work with then mayor newsome in passing the first generation of open data legislation that we have. but as our civil grand jury in june pointed out, our i-t in san francisco is still in need of a culture shock. and this is where all of us come in today. we have 200 data sets that have already been put out there, but by and large the data sets put out by city go
technology sector. supervisor farrell mention the city as a partner in the effort.one of the commitments it was unheard of by many of the tech companies, the same with tax exclusion that we also did on stock compensation was that tech companies were committed on working with the city of san francisco on hiring residents from many neighborhoods that don't have access to the growing technology sector whether it is the mission, tenderloin, south of market and western addition; and happy to have cosponsors breed, cohen, avalos - to see what it is that we can do to partner with our private tech sector to ensure that we are opening up and creating a pipeline of jobs whether it is for our students born and raised in san francisco who might not get the type of education to be competitive for these jobs; whether it is adults that i found themselves unemployed in an economy not doing well but need additional training for these jobs. what is it that we can do to partner with the mayor's office in our tech companies to develop programs that would address three different population needs so they
agency that historically has suffered from maybe the worst website and some of the worst technology in government. and over the last few years we have worked really hard to improve that park user's experience through the use of technology. and i want to start out before we talk a little about the app saying a if you thank yous. i really want to thank mayor lee to his incredible commitment to technology and frankly the recreation and park department. i want to thank supervisor chiu who has been a leader both in the parks world and in the technology world. sf city has really been a driving force behind helping government think about new ways, new and improved ways maybe for some of you they're old ways now. but new and improved ways for government to reach users of our programs and services. and i want to say the last special thank you to the folks from apple-liscious. this thing is awesome. this past year, the trust for public land which is a national parks organization determined that san francisco, which has 4,000 acres of open space and over 220 parks, over 15% of the city's land
, it is the city wide consolidation that was searching for this. >> okay. >> so the next, technology improvement is the cashiering. the primary department that is working on the implementation for the department and we have been working with them alongside starting before this development and contract. we have actually right now, the interface and as soon as the testing is complete. it has been set up for training on the cashiers as soon as it is complete we will do the training and improve the position. for now, the tentative days is the middle of february for the tax collect and her we are planing to go right after within a couple of weeks after the tax collecters. the next project was the refresh fof the computers for the staff. swre been having a three year replacement cycle, where we have deployed computers, every year, we have got about 50 to 100 computers that we deploy. so it is the oldest computer that will would be like four years at the most. so to have been up to date we have purchased the latest of 50 commuters over the counter staff on the fifth floor and they will be getting the n
it will take to build the comprehensive portal in terms of time and technology needed to develop the portal. and then as a conjunctto that, eric and i have been going out to merchant associations, business associations to solicit participation to get their members for merchant associations/business associations to have their members fill out a business survey and we'll be sending that to you as well, for you to be able to take a look at. to get their feedback in terms of businesses, 0-5 years, we're asking them to fill out a survey about their experience in opening a business and then for businesses over five years, we're asking them about their experience about their ongoing engagement with the city. so what improvements do they see? what improvements would they like to see? what would make things easier in terms of their ongoing engagement? you know, obviously we're looking to see what kind of feedback they might give us in terms of direction, in terms of technology improvements and things of that sort. so that is the update. and once eric and i are targeting sort of early-march to hav
a lot of panels up there already but doesn't fill all the roof tops and there is new technology coming out all the time. we have been challenged in the solar technology arena because traditional technology has heavy weight technology that always challenged the integrity of roof tops, and moscone is the one we found and let that be for one of these companies and light ultralight technology and use, cheaper way of getting solar out there and we're going to allow them to demonstrate their product on top of our mos connie roof and that is an example we're doing in utilizing all of the agency's cooperations and make sure the start ups can use real testing sites in the city. that is thanks to the hardand kelly and the manager at puc and barbara hale and the second thing we're going to do is take a page out of what we're doing with clean tech and biotech life sciences. you see what mission bay is doing. they have for the last ten years building up a ecosystem of pharmaceutical companies and san francisco medical center and integrated around with the research teams to form a very strong res
, with water that are not always proven technologies, but they're things that are enough proven you should take a bit of a risk and you should show others it can be done. >> we're showing the world, suddenly had wind turbines which they didn't have before. so, our team realizing that time would change, and realizing where the opportunities were today, we said, you know what, we started out as really something to control wind as an asset, when you combine today's technology becomes something entirely different. >> wind turbines in an urban environment is a relatively new concept. there are a few buildings in other major cities where they have installed wind turbines on the roof. and wind turbines in buildings are effective. >> the discussion was do we do that or not? and the answer was, of course. if they're not perfect yet, they're building a building that will last 100 years. in 100 years someone is going to perfect wind efficient turbines. if these aren't right, we'll replace them. we have time to do that. >> the building that's two renewable energy generations. wind turbines located on the n
principle is innovation and technology. when i say italy everybody will think of the arts and music. they don't think of technology yet we want to persuade you there are lots of things to be discovered. i was working in the world of energy and there i think we have taken enormous steps in the direction of a modern sustainable green economy, what we call now distributed generations of people producing and consuming energy. this is happening at an incredible pace in california and i know california like this is and we want to connect with california. some of the events will require the supports of the leaders that are here present, the leaders of the italian american associations. i am very proud to say that all of the leaders of the italian american associations are gathered today, mr. mayor, and senator assembly man and board of supervisors is here to celebrate with us and ramona blackwell who with the committee of the italians abroad and elected body and we will need your support and it's not just top down but bottom up. we're are open to your ideas and suggestions. we want
feedback they might give us in terms of direction, in terms of technology improvements and things of that sort. so that is the update. and once eric and i are targeting sort of early-march to have a first sort of glean through of the surveys that we have received from the departments. so hopefully at our second meeting in march, i will have him make a presentation to the commission to provide you with sort of our first run-through of taking a look at the results of the survey. i have for you as a copy, in your binder, the tax and treasurer's office has modified their business registration form. it's now a one-page form and it includes the sb1186, sb 1186 requires that each local municipality collect a dollar per business registration or license to go towards inspection or inspectors, mostly with the municipality department of department of building inspection and also for ongoing outreach education, helping businesses in compliance with their construction-related accessibility improvements. of the dollar, $0.70 is to stay in the local municipality. $0.30 goes to the state. 5% of

we would hear opinions that is broken down. not the least of which is the technological revolution over the last 20 years. >> host: have lost gate keepers of news? >> guest: that is a central theme that that we call as the honored that term is simple fact the way that information could become public information is that you could argue you don't need dates so what becomes newsworthy and what goes by role is very different from just prior to this area but we cannot just compare what we have now to what preceded the 50 years of broadcast news. hysteric -- historically we have five media regimes in which the relationship between the media citizens so if you want to assess what is good or bad you need to look not just out of the lobster gained which is the era of realism but banda a late 18th-century that that issue in front of us what is good about it and had to maintain or limit what is bad. >> host: go to do the title "after broadcast news" would have lost as opposed to abc, cbs, nbc era? >> guest: we lost the significant thing. but when we lived in the era of the '50s and '60s throu
